Markt Tour in Versailles: Chef Patricia Boussaroque Introduces Us to Her Boucherie and Annalee Begins a Love Affair with Comte (no, that’s not the name of a chic, pate-eating Frenchman)

Fromage at the Versailles Market

I hide my face behind my hands when I tell my fellow culinary travelers that I don’t like cheese. “Why did you come to France?!” If you have been following my blog, you know that I am a loyal fan of Reggiano Parmigiano in all its rustic beauty, but I have never been one for soft cheeses, or any other cheese for that matter. That is until Patricia, owner of the Versailles cooking school Atelier Cuisine de Patricia, introduced me to Comte. Oh la la. I now like deux cheeses.

Now let us change courses. We’ve had our fromage, our poulet, and our poisson. On to the cornerΒ boulangerie for dessert.

The reason why every Parisian frequents the boulangerie everyday: French bread. Also known as God’s greatest gift.
